React - how to comment source code

3 points
Created by:

In this article, we would like to show you how to comment source code in React.

Quick solution (inside JSX):

{/* Comment inside React JSX */}


In React writing source code in JavaScript we have two cases of using comments:

  • pure JavaScript lines, we use comments such as:
    // single-line comment or /* multi-line comment */,
  • JSX notation lines we have to wrap them in curly braces additionally, e.g. {/* comment */}.

Practical example:

// ONLINE-RUNNER:browser;

// import React from 'react';
// import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';

const App = () => {
    // const [value, setValue] = React.useState();
      Some comment here..
      Some comment here...
    return (
            //Some comment here...
            //Some comment here...

const root = document.querySelector('#root');
ReactDOM.render(<App />, root);

Inside JSX HTML comments are not supported.
